Swansea City are keen to get striker Wilfried Bony off the books and are holding out for £2 million from Galatasaray for the African centre forward, according to Goal.

The Welsh side have overhauled their squad this summer after relegation from the Premier League, with the Swans deciding to cut their cloth accordingly.

While a host of established international players have already left Swansea, Bony looks set to be the next big-name departure.

The Ivory Coast international has shown during two spells at the Liberty Stadium that he can be a devastating centre forward, but struggles with his fitness have prevented a run of momentum in recent times.

The latest report suggests that Swansea are keen to offload Bony before the European transfer window closes and will demand between £1.5m-£2 million for him, with Galatasaray keen.

For a willing buyer, the relatively modest fee could represent a shrewd gamble, as Bony could score goals regularly at most levels if he hits his best form.

Swansea meanwhile have turned to Old McBurnie in their pursuit of promotion, with the Scottish forward the club’s top scorer this season with three Championship goals.
